As a member of the Bulldogs golf team back in the mid-1960s, I cannot remember there EVER having been a team championship for the Red and White. I am at once proud of this group and eager to be corrected if I’m wrong about that team championship statement.
Hideki Matsuyama is the 2021 Masters Champion, and he joins a short list of players who have been low amateur and winner of the Green Jacket: Jack Nicklaus, Cary Middlecoff, Ben Crenshaw, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia.
The Lady Mustangs and the Lady Tors will travel to College Station to compete in the April 19-20 Region III-5A Girls Golf Championship, on the Golf Club of Texas course.

Doctors will do all they can, as will many other health care professionals. At some point, though, it will be up to Woods to put in the work it will take for him to have a shot at once again playing on the PGA Tour.

The use of distance-measuring devices is widespread among recreational golfers, and they have been for years used by professionals and their caddies during practice rounds to gather and record relevant yardages for reference during tournament play.
Like a 12-play drive that takes 8 minutes off the clock in a football game, Brooks Koepka was relentless, firing a six under par final round while Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele scrambled around the course like Patrick Mahomes attempting to escape the Tampa Bay defense.
During the third round of last weekend’s PGA tournament, the eventual winner took an action that afterward he thought might have been a rules violation. He called for an official, who ultimately ruled that the player was not guilty.
If last Sunday’s NFL conference championships had been determined by which quarterback was the best golfer, the guys wearing silver helmets with blue stars would be headed to the Super Bowl. But wait, Tony Romo is rasping in the announcer’s booth and the “Boys from Dallas” are as much a memo…
Golfers know all about the importance of accurately measuring distances, and that importance is seen in course yardage markers on every hole, as well as technology like GPS systems in golf carts that offer enough distance readings to turn a three-hour round into four-and-a-half hours.
The darling of the two-day tournament, though, was Charlie Woods. A little late getting his debut on TV (dad Tiger debuted at age 5), the younger Woods can at least say that his initial experience was for two consecutive days and in tough competition.
To put this in perspective, the odds of making a hole-in-one have been calculated at 12,500 to 1 for amateurs and 2,500 to 1 for professionals. Moreover, it has been estimated that 1-2 percent of golfers make an ace each year. The percentage of golfers who shoot their age? 0.0000089 percent. Yes, fewer than nine players per million!
